It would be useful to have shortcut keys for programs which we normally use so that we can open it when we wanted with ease.
So here we will see how to assign short cut keys for programs.
In the start Menu just right click any program shortcut and then select properties.
Go to the start cut tab and then in the short cut label click on the textbox near it (where none is written by default) and when the cursor blinks there just press any key to make it the short cut.
Note that the short cut must be in the start Menu.
If you press R you will have a short cut key as ctrl+alt+R.
